Manchester United took the lead by scoring from the start. Rashford’s forward breakthrough in the 3rd minute of the first half successfully led to Tottenham’s camp, and Tottenham was embarrassed by Manchester United’s offensive at the start of the game. Neither Tottenham nor Manchester United were able to handle Rashford’s pass from the center properly, and Huairun, who was looking for a break, scored the first goal by stabbing the top of Tottenham’s goal with an accurate left-footed shot.
Tottenham, which allowed the first run, immediately fought back. It aimed for Manchester United’s gap by connecting the attack using the speed of Johnson and Werner, and the pass regardless of the midfield and side. In the 8th minute of the first half, Poro’s shot from far away in the penalty box to the front of the arc was hit by the defense and lost strength, giving it to Onana as it was. In the 10th minute of the first half, Johnson’s sharp cross hit Werner’s head and headed for Manchester United’s goal, which Evans cleared and went out to the side of Manchester United’s goal.
Manchester United also fought hard for more points. In the 13th minute of the first half, Garnacho shook Tottenham’s right side with a solo dribble. Udo appeared to allow a breakthrough by competing with Garnacho and losing once, but did not allow Garnacho a decisive opportunity by kicking the ball away with a tackle after pressing again.
Tottenham, which launched a counterattack, balanced the game again. In the 19th minute of the first half, a corner kick by a prisoner fell to the place where the players were concentrated, and Hishalisson succeeded in hitting the head despite defensive pressure and turned the ball back to Manchester United’s goal. Onana couldn’t even react to the shot.
Tottenham took the lead in the game after the equalizer and put Manchester United under pressure. In the 22nd minute of the first half, Werner confidently attempted his first shot from the left side of the penalty box arc, but he couldn’t reach the goal and made fans sigh. Werner tried to shoot again a minute later, but this time he was caught in defense.
Manchester United sought an opportunity through counterattacks. In the 30th minute of the first half, Rashford drove the ball directly to the left of the penalty box and crossed, but he put it up at a too slow timing and headed for Vicario. In the 38th minute of the first half, Rashford’s cross hit Udogi’s head and hit the net, chilling Tottenham fans.
The two teams continued to maintain the tempo of the game after the middle of the first half by pressing and counterattacking the opponent at a high speed.
Manchester United went ahead again. After receiving Rashford’s pass in the 40th minute of the first half, Hoirun returned the ball to Rashford again, and Tottenham gave up space as defenders could not concentrate properly on the momentary offensive of Manchester United’s attackers. Rashford immediately attempted a low and fast shot with his right foot to poke the corner of Manchester United’s goal.
Tottenham tried to balance itself out again. Werner drove the counterattack, which started with a skip pass in the 44th minute of the first half, and successfully made it into the penalty box. However, Werner’s left footed shot flowed directly to the side of the net, not the goal, and had to swallow regret. In the extra time of the second half, Romero, who was in the center of the box, finished the ball from a corner kick with a header, but failed to score a goal as it hit the top of the net. In the end, the first half ended with Manchester United’s 2-1 lead.
Tottenham brought the game back to square one with the start of the second half. In the first minute of the second half, Werner attempted to dribble inside from the left side of the penalty box, giving the ball away to the penetrating Bentancur. Bentancur advanced to the depths of the penalty box and shook the Manchester United net with a cheerful shot over Onana’s head.
Tottenham scored the equalizer and never stopped trying to turn the tables. Werner delivered the ball to Hishalisson, who was missing on the left near the arc of the penalty box, at the seventh minute of the second half. Hishalisson did not hesitate to hit the ground ball to target Manchester United. However, the ball was easily caught by Onana.
Werner’s shot once again turned a blind eye to the goal. With a corner kick in the 13th minute of the second half, the ball went to the far side of the net, and Werner had a chance to shoot without interfering with defense. Werner’s volley shot floated above the net, not inside the goal, sighing fans.
Manchester United didn’t stop trying to get ahead again. In the 14th minute of the second half, Huairun shook Tottenham’s defense through a solo breakthrough through Panderpen with a brilliant individual skill. Huairun then crossed, but did not penetrate Vicario. In the 16th minute of the second half, Scott McTominay’s powerful shot headed for Tottenham’s goal, but slightly missed the side of the net and hit the ground. In the 20th minute of the second half, Rashford headed into the Tottenham penalty box through a counterattack, but failed to attempt a shot due to the fast cover of Tottenham’s defense.
Tottenham has yet to make full use of Werner’s speed. In the 31st minute of the second half, Hoivier gave a pass to Werner, who was running into the back space of Manchester United’s defense, but he was caught offside. It could have been a better opportunity if he tried to pass a little faster considering Werner’s speed, but it was a scene where it showed that the teamwork between Werner and Tottenham players was not perfect so far.
